Concept Pro 8 Channel 8MP NVR with PoE

The Concept Pro VUHDIP-8 model is an eight channel professional NVR that can record up to 8 megapixel, 4K UHD network video on all channels. It can record at real-time up to 200FPS at 8 megapixel resolution, resulting in clear images that can be fluidly played back. The VUHDIP range also supports the latest H.265 video compression codec for greater storage savings in addition to traditional H.264. The NVR offers a range of features suited for advanced applications, including remote monitoring station integration, P2P connectivity for remote viewing on mobile devices, and compatibility with the license-free iPIMS VMS.

Professional Remote Monitoring
Povides 24 hour remote monitoring for clients and is available on all Concept Pro recorders with Alarm Receving Stations using Immix Cloud and Sentinel platforms.




iPims - License Free Software
iPims is a powerful, license-free video management software solution that can connect to all Concept Pro Lite IP, AHD and Analogue CCTV recorders and record footage from up to 256 recorders regardless of platform.


Sequrinet enables installers to add Enhanced Password Control (EPC) to their recorder systems, ensuring our Concept Pro recorders are the most secure on the market. This prohibits the use of easily infiltrated passwords by ensuring a user creates their own complex password to access their device.



H.265 Smart Storage Compression
H.265 compression allows for reductions in storage capacity of between 4% and 95% deeonding on the amount of motion in the video. Concept Pro Smart Storage Compression (SSC) offers enhancements in recording times by improving control of the streaming rate of IP cameras automatically from the NVR. This gaurantees 30 days of constant video recording.


Secure P2P Networking
Utilising a Secured European Sever, P2P is the simplest way to connect a Concept Pro recorder for remote viewing on smartphones and tablets. With features such as PTZ control and alarm playback you can control various elements of the NVR remotely.
